Survival Tips 101

How to Survive If You Fall Into A Cesspool

Because you never know...

1. Get out quickly. In cases of falls into cesspools and septic tanks, the most common cause of death is asphyxiation from methane gas. The gas causes rapid unconsciousness; deaths in as few as two minutes have been recorded.

2. Hold your breath for as long as possible between taking breaths.

3. If you cannot climb out, give one loud shout for help.
In-use tanks and pools will be full nearly to the top with liquid and solid waste. Do not shout repeatedly - this will deplete your air supply.

4. Once out, get at least 10 feet away from the tank before trying to catch your breath.

And now you know. Just in case.
